I don't remember seeing any place where an SSID could be set, but will check tomorrow.

If my Plus has a Ethernet connection, can I link it with a Mini using MoCA with the Plus acting as the MoCA starting point?

Isn't wired always going to be faster than wireless? Don't all the internet apps (Netflix etc) have to go across either a wired or wireless internet connection? If it is available and not to difficult to set up wired seems to be the best.?

For the streaming services, as long as the WiFi network doesn't have issues there should be no difference. All of the streaming services have low bandwidth streams. At least this is the case with my other streaming devices and WiFI. Whether connected wirelessly or wired, playing 2D, Super HD, or 3D content, the experience has been identical for me.

Yeah most of the streaming services max out at 12Mbps even for their best HD, so wifi should be fine. Although if you have several people all watching at once and a super high speed internet connection then you might run up against the wifi limit.
